Goodreads Summary:

In the follow-up to Colleen Hoover’s #1 New York Times bestseller Hopeless, the charming and irresistible Dean Holder tells the passionate story that has melted thousands of hearts.

In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no feeling unshared, and no memory forgotten, but Holder’s past remained a mystery.

Still haunted by the little girl he let walk away, Holder has spent his entire life searching for her in an attempt to finally rid himself of the crushing guilt he has felt for years. But he could not have anticipated that the moment they reconnect, even greater remorse would overwhelm him…

Sometimes in life, if we wish to move forward, we must first dig deep into our past and make amends. In Losing Hope, bestselling author Colleen Hoover reveals what was going on inside Holder’s head during all those hopeless moments—and whether he can gain the peace he desperately needs.

What Made Me Swoon:

Swoon #1:

"I dip my head and kiss her.  I kiss her like she deserves to be kissed.  I hold her like she deserves to be held.   And I'm about to make love to her like she deserves to be loved.  I untie the robe she's wearing and slide my hand across her stomach.  God, I love you, I say to her.  My hand moves from her waist, down her hip and to her thigh." (Nook, pg. 232)

Swoon #2:

"When I touch you, I'm touching you because I want to make you happy.  When I kiss you, I'm kissing you because you have the most incredible mouth I've ever seen and you know I can't not kiss it.  And when I make love to you-I'm doing exactly that.  I'm making love to you because I'm in love with you."  (Nook, pg. 233)
